  • Side-by-Side/ Express Mode – Transaction ranking rules are automatic, and it also uses the transaction list window to add or match any transactions. You can also remove any transaction if required. 
  • Register/ Classic Mode – Register mode allows you to create and control new aliases. It uses the transaction list window to add or match transactions. You can also remove any mistakenly added transaction in Register mode.

Note: You can only remove or edit any transaction in Register mode if you created that transaction in the same mode and vice versa for Advance and Side-by-Side mode. You can’t remove the transaction you have added from a different mode.
